The pella double hung- does it still not tilt- do you have to still remove the sashes? The ultra - does it still have the light commercial or commercial rating? The pella has a 2 year labor warranty.

Fine. Buy a potentially obsolete window if you want. I'm a dentist, by the way, not a window dealer.

Jeld-Wen Auralast wood not available with aluminum cladding?

A local Jeld-Wen dealer told me today that their treated Auralast wood is only available with all-wood windows. Any windows that are clad with aluminum can't be ordered with Auralast. Can any of you confirm this?

The Rolscreens cover about 1.5 inch of visible glass at the top of your casement, but none on the left, right, or bottom. In my case, my miniblinds hang down more than that even when pulled all the way up, so it is a non-issue. Love 'em. I prefer them to other screens since they roll up, making abso...
